Yes, I was describing true freshman running back Jamaal Williams.
|Jamaal Williams (21) had his best game against Hawaii|
Jamaal Williams has been as good as advertised. He has shown the ability to catch the ball out of the back field, as well as take it between the tackles. He can get around the edge and make guys miss, not to mention lower his shoulder and lay some guys out. All to get an average of over 5 yards per carry. That's impressive for a senior running back. But this all coming from a guy who can't even vote on November 6.
I have thoroughly enjoyed watching Williams get more and more reps. This is happening partially due to the injury to Michael Alisa. However, even before Alisa's injury Williams was seeing the field for decent experience for a true freshman. He has proven to be one of the biggest offensive threats for BYU this season. He is only going to get more touches, and only going to get better.
I sure hope this kid stays healthy, and stays in Provo. If he does, I think we can all expect awesome things from Jamaal Williams. We have gotten a good glimpse of what he can do this year already. What more has he got to show us?
